My company was based in NY till August but then moved to NJ. I am a NJ resident. I was filing my taxes and noticed something odd in my W-2. Usually line 1 and 16 match for NY since I worked there full time and line 16 was slightly higher than line 1 for NJ since I live there. But this year line 1 & 16 for NY still match but line 16 for NJ is much lower than line 1. Hope this makes sense. I am not sure if this is an issue with my W-2 or not. Thank you for your help
There is no issue with your W-2 this year. Your W-2s in past years were probably filled out incorrectly. If you worked in New York all year your W-2 should not have had a NJ line at all unless NJ tax was withheld, which is unlikely.
